My landlord sent me an email that he has a new leasing

My landlord sent me an email that he has a new leasing agent. All I know about her is her email address. She ignores all my requests for her address, phone number and real estate license, but sends people to my home without any notice and if I don't let them in "documents" that I refused to let them in. Is she required to give me this information?

I am buying a real estate property (residential house). I do

I am buying a real estate property (residential house). I do not have a sellng agent and found the property myself. I know if I would have had the selling agent then this selling agent would have been entitled to 3.5% fee from the seller. Since I do not have the selling agent -- can I negotiated with the listing agent for this 3.5% (because if I do noting the listing agent would get full 7%). For example, can I specify in the contract to purchase (or some other agreement) that if there is a gap between my offer and the seller counteroffer -- the listing agent would be obligated to come up with up to 3.5% of the selling price to bridge the gap? Or are there any other legal ways for me to get some benefit in getting the % from the listing agent because I am doing the purchase without the selling agent?

I am selling a piece of rural forest property. A friend who

I am selling a piece of rural forest property. A friend who I employed to work on the land found and brought me a buyer. The friend does not have a real estate license but I want to compensate him for bringing me a buyer now that a realtor was not involved and I don't have to pay a real estate commission. I want to give the person who brought me the buyer 5% of the selling price. I know this cannot be called a commission but since I have employed this individual in the past, can I call this compensation a consulting fee or what is the legal way to do this without calling it a commission since my friend does not have a real estate license?JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Real Estate Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.Customer: Thanks, ***** *****JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No, we are still negotiating a priceJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
